"The usual case of elevated cholesterol today, 99% of the time, is NOT associated with disease. The actual level of cholesterol is irrelevant in these cases. It is a God-given variable like one's height and irrelevant to atherosclerosis and increased cardiovascular risk. 40 years of brainwashing about cholesterol causation of heart disease, I believe, is completely wrong."
